Mad as Hell:
How Broadway Ruined Network

5,495 words

When asked to name my favorite film, I have a tough time choosing between Fight Club and Network. I was delighted, therefore, when I learned that Network had been turned into a Broadway play starring Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, everything, as it turned out.

Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke

1,692 words

Choke (2008)
Written & directed by Clark Gregg
Starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly Macdonald, & Brad William Henke

Chuck Palahniuk, most recently the author of the ethnostate satire Adjustment Day and known mainly for Fight Club, inspired another feature film with his 2001 novel, Choke. The 2008 film of the same name focuses on sex addiction, a timely subject in the current era of spiritual emptiness, which is one of Palahniuk’s recurrent themes. Intentionally or not, this dark comedy serves to repel the viewer from sexual deviance more effectively than any Christian sermon about sin. Read more …

The War Movie

4,780 words

While Western expansion in the United States really started when English settlers travelled overland from Massachusetts to Connecticut in 1635, a true film of the Western genre is only set west of the 100th meridian in the years between the Confederate surrender at Appomattox and the coronation of Edward VII. While warfare has existed since time immemorial, a true War Movie is only set between 1933 and 1945, during the time of Hitler and the Second World War.

Attack of the Bugmen!
Heinlein & Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers

2,269 words

Robert Heinlein’s novel Starship Troopers is a genre-defining classic of science fiction. First published in 1959, Heinlein’s work is audacious in propounding aristocratic militarism, will-to-power, social inequality, and contempt for liberal and mercantile values. Starship Troopers describes the path of a young man, Johnny Rico, from uncertain recruit to achieving the rank of Field Officer in an interstellar war against the “Bugs,” a species of giant arachnids.

Partying in Rome:
La Grande Bellezza

775 words

I am always astounded by how bad the films playing in mainstream cinemas look and, when I occasionally go to see them, I often find that my initial impressions based on the ads or a synopsis were fully justified. So when I enjoy a fairly recent film, it is noteworthy. Read more …

White Tribalism in Action:
Lauren Southern’s Farmlands

1,777 words

The most dangerous and remarkable thing about Lauren Southern’s wonderful documentary Farmlands is that it promotes white tribalism. For most people – whites and non-whites alike – this is enough to make the film anathema. They will recognize it for the taboo-breaking film that it is and either stop watching or begin hating Lauren Southern as a racist or white supremacist. Sympathizing with whites as victims just isn’t cool these days, you see. Read more …

Directed by John Curran
Written by Taylor Allen & Andrew Logan

Imperium:
American History X Meets Harry Potter

2,073 words

Imperium (2016)
Written & directed by Daniel Ragussis
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, & Devin Druid

Imperium bears some similarities to the 1998 film American History X, which has the same theme. Both come across as attempts to demonize white identity by associating it with unsavory characters. Read more …

Hostiles (2017)
Written, directed, & co-produced by Scott Cooper
Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, & Jesse Plemons

Never have I seen a movie cuck so hard, so fast.

Normally, I wouldn’t even consider reviewing a movie that is so antithetical to the goals of white advocacy. Why write up two thousand words on a movie that few of us will see and even fewer should? Read more …

She’s So High, High Above Me:
Watching The Fountainhead on TCM

2,176 words

You know I always wanted to pretend that I was an architect.
–George Costanza[1]

The Fountainhead is something of a rite of passage or gateway drug on the Right. Back in the 1960s/’70s it was more likely the movie than the book that one stumbled upon. I suppose I must have seen it on some afternoon movie show back in the ‘60s. Was it the Bill Kennedy at the Movies show on CKLW out of Windsor, Ontario on Saturday afternoons? Read more …

Conservatives are the Real Anti-Whites:
Dinesh D’Souza’s Death of a Nation

2,748 words

Going to the movie theater is a religious ritual of sorts for me. My soda is my wine, and the dehydrated corn kernels accented with sludge are my wafers. They are a debauched communion. The largely Jewish-controlled entertainment industry is my church, and on this occasion, D’Souza was my minister. Read more …

Two Independent Films for the Dissident Right

1,072 words

I have heard it often said that no art is being produced on the Right anymore, that everything we see and hear and experience is deconstructive of traditional Western values, particularly in film. This, however, shows the laziness of many of the talking heads on the Right, who are only too ready to churn out bad news porn and not willing enough to do a modicum of research or promote those creating content.

1974

By the early 1970s, Americans had begun to notice a change in their big cities. After the Civil Rights movement and the 1965 Immigration Act, the multiracial rot – the inevitable by-product of the Left’s ascendancy in the West – began to set in. Read more …

Toward a White Wakanda

1,301 words

The new Black Panther film is problematic in some respects. Seeing blacks idealized in an advanced world of the future–that of Wakanda–is probably bad for the average white person. It doesn’t give them the sort of accurate view of a typical black society I showed in my Similarities article.  Read more …

Spielberg’s War:
Saving Private Ryan & the Jewish Experience

4,297 words

Saving Private Ryan is widely acknowledged to be one of the best war films ever made. Released in 1998, the film quickly became both a critical and commercial success, and was soon nominated for 11 Oscars – ultimately going on to win five (including both Best Picture and Best Director). Spielberg was praised for challenging both audience desensitization and the idea of World War II as some sort of “glamorous” or “romantic”[1] affair, Read more …
